I'm in the "decades for some" category. On a side note, does this mean you don't have to be a gsca member to race at the Nationals? 
My last nationals was 91 and it sure looks by the pix I've seen the last decade has had a serious decline in attendance.

Really tuff getting members back once they leave. An having Richard still running the BG event I don't see change coming. It's getting smaller and smaller every year. Night TT and qualifying would be awesome. BUT wouldn't get my hopes up. Good Luck to Paul. Be great to prove me wrong  :chin: :cheers:

Interesting announcement today from Paul:
FYI - Richard Lasseter has said that the GS National EVENT was separate
from the Buick GS Club of America (GSCA).  So that means we will be
providing coverage of as many Buick events around the USA (and world)
that we can for the members!  Where it was somewhat limited to 1 event
in the past, members will now see all the REALLY COOL stuff going on out
 there!  We had a good number of NEW people joining, and a bunch of
people that let their membership lapse (DECADES for some) are now
returning! The future looks BRIGHT!

I like going old school with a block of 2x4  under the pedal so my helper  doesnt over stroke it. I usually get one of the kids to help. But a wife, drinking buddy or neighbor who can follow directions can work. Clean fluid, clear mayo jar and a hose that fits through the 5/16" deep socket and I turn that by hand while bleeding. I did do a gravity bleed on the rears when I did the hydroboost on mine but it had been sitting so I had to pull both bleeders out several times to clean them out. It had some nasty stuff in there. Then bled em until it came out clean.

Seat comes out pretty easily. But we did ours laying under there. Did you get a vac pedal to swap? I would have a replacement cotter pin as I ended up cutting off the stock one to get the eye off the pedal.
I'm pretty sure we used a ratchet and deep 15mm (could have been 13mm been a while since we did it) on firewall nuts. And you will need a helper to hold the vac unit on the firewall while you are under the dash reinstalling the pedal.


Yes I have the vacuum pedal, and I'm also replacing the gm disc/drum brake brass proportioning valve pv2 universal ACDelco, all of the brake rubber hose with ACDelco type with new Banjo bolts and Banjo bolt washers. I already replaced all of the brake pads, drum brakes and springs.
I'm in the process of building my own one man bleeding system, similar to the one Amazon has on their site:
Motive Products 105 Brake System Power Bleeder

Once I finalize I will display on site what I did.
